Former Bangladesh captain Khaled Mahmud Sujon is likely to be taken to Singapore tonight for treatment after he suffered a stroke on Saturday morning.

A family member confirmed on Monday that the BCB is arranging an ambulance to the airport this afternoon.

Mahmud, the team's manager and a board director, went into coma on Sunday evening when he was shifted to the intensive care unit of United Hospital in Dhaka.

BCB president Nazmul Hassan and several directors visited him soon after an emergency meeting in Mirpur.

Mahmud was Bangladesh's third Test captain, having led them in nine games in 2003. He also led them in 15 ODIs the same year. He retired from international cricket in 2006 and went into coaching and administration soon afterwards.

Meanwhile, BCB sources said Khaled Mahmud Sujon’s condition has improved since last night.

BCB media committee chairman Jalal Yousuf has said while Khaled Mahmud is still in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), his ventilation was removed since he didn’t need any support for breathing. His body is responding. Further analysis will be done after an MRI but his condition is better than last night.
